    Don't know if anyone still following this series but I'm hooked!

    Keep seeing them using the kettle bell weights - they keep saying its one of the best form of fat burning!?

    Anyone got any ideas as it actual looks like quite a inexpensive form of exercise ?

    I dont know what weights they using but I remember her saying last week that 30 mins of doing the squat thrusts she expected them to burn something silly like 800 cals!!! :D

    Don't quote me on that but am sure it was around that mark and thats an amazing amount to burn in that time!

    Googled them and they advise women to use 8 kgs??

    mnnn , I thought they were great when I saw them last series, and yes 30 mins of squat thrusts is brilliant to burn that many calories, but seriously , I think you'd need to be marine to do 30 mins straight.
    Just watching them makes me think of knee replacements.

    And Jamie needs a good telling off from Angie, not a coaxing did you pretend to pass out, a proper , kick up the ar*e, specially when people get voted off who are genuinely wanting to be there.:mad::mad:

    mommyB love it

    loved it the other day when angie was telling sadie off about her food and portion sizes, made me realise all the excuses she used were the same ones i use sometimes-openned my eyes ?

    Yes MommyB I thought the same here :eek:

    Re 30mins training with the kettlebells - if the biggest losers do it on daily basis I'm sure we can cuz they deffo aint like x
